2014-08-27 03:16:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Patients with a diagnosis of chronic fatigue or pain benefit minimally from a conventional medical evaluation yet consume a large amount of medical resources and time. The question is to see if patients with a diagnosis of chronic pain or fatigue benefit from an Integrative Medicine medical evaluation conducted by physician who has additional training in Integrative Medicine. Patients who call for a general medical examination with a complaint of chronic fatigue or pain will be set up with the integrative medical specialist or standard general medical evaluation.
